Courses Taught: Introduction to Engineering 1, ENGR 1201, Spring 2012 – present
I work in the Office of Student Development and Success (OSDS) of the William States Lee College of Engineering (COE). A large part of my job here in OSDS is advising Freshman engineering students and teaching the ENGR 1201 course. ENGR 1201, which is similar to ETGR 1201, is an introductory course on the road to becoming an engineering student in the UNCC COE. Read more about what we offer on the OSDS website.
I am also the Director for the MAPS Program. MAPS stands for Maximizing Academic and Professional Success. The MAPS Program is all about helping students make it successfully through the first year in the College. One key way we do that through our MAPS coaching program. Coaches are undergrads who have made it through the first year with a 3.0 or better. This model of peer mentoring has been successful for more than half a decade here in the College.
I have a Master’s in Biological and Agricultural Engineering (North Carolina State University, 1994). I come to OSDS from the private sector, where I owned and operated a web marketing and consulting business. Previously I worked as an environmental engineer for the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources. My background encompasses both nonpoint source pollution management and aquacultural wastewater treatment.
My research interests include:
- Nonpoint source pollution management practices
- Biological treatment and management of wastewater
- Intensive aquacultural engineering
